    schema:description "As a whole, Alanis Morissette's work has never been critically analyzed. The Words and Music of Alanis Morissette addresses this oversight through its examination of Morissette's work in the context of biographical facts, its relationship to other cultural trends, and its reflection of the female perspective. This book merges biographical information with a critical examination of the music that she produced and performed during all periods of her life, thereby providing a needed overview of Morissette's body of work. All Morissette fans will appreciate learning about the details of her life, but the author's melding of the star's personal life story with an informed analysis of popular music will also appeal to a wider audience{u2014}readers interested in music, culture, women's studies, or female musicians, for example. The book provides entertaining and engrossing reading for any Alanis Morissette fan and serves as a resource that documents her broad contributions to the music industry. Provides a study of subject matter far beyond Morissette's blockbuster album, Jagged Little Pill, with coverage extending to 2012's Havoc and Bright Lights. Situates Morissette alongside noteworthy female singer-songwriters with roots extending back to the 1960s. Traces the origins of Morissette's music in pop, grunge, and electronic dance music. Explains how Morissette's enormous appeal among fans lies largely in their identification with details that she shared about her life and experiences."@en ;
